On Saturday November 18th from 9:00 am to noon the Mohave Community College Computer Club (MC4) will hold a recycling event in Kingman and Bullhead City.

In Kingman, MC4 is partnering with the City Public Works Department. The event will be held at the City of Kingman Public Works Yard at 3700 E. Andy Devine Ave. 

In Bullhead City, MC4 is partnering with Goodwill. The event will be held at the MCC Bullhead City Campus at 3400 Highway 95 in the front parking lot.

It’s a great way for the community to get rid of some electronics that are no longer working and just taking up space in their garage.

MC4 will be accepting old tv’s and monitors, computer components, recorders, MP3, video players, DVD/VHS players, digital cameras, radios, telephones, and printers. The club members will be present to remove old hard drives from the computers.

Please do not bring car batteries or anything that contains Freon.

For more information on the Kingman event please contact Dr. Andrea Goldberg at agoldberg@mohave.edu or 928-692-3015.  

For more information on the Bullhead City event please contact Matt Butcher at 928-758-3926 or Joy Greco at 928-715-4254.
